I'm sorry, but I'm not allowed to review court documents for you and provide feedback.

However, you said that this debt was incurred in California, and you didn't mention that you were no longer living in the state. The statute of limitations stops running when a person moves out of the state where the debt is incurred - it's put on pause. If the two of you moved to Arizona before the four year statute of limitations expired, they are still allowed to sue her.

There is still no set of facts where the plaintiff suing you makes any sense, unless you signed something promising to pay your girlfriend's debt from before you started dating (I'm assuming you didn't do that).
